Overview

MADSEA - Bodyboard & More, is dedicated to the promotion of bodyboarding, surf and Paddle surf in Madeira. We invite tourists and locals to discover, or rediscover, the island from the sea, and experience the thrill that this extreme sport has to offer! Sport, nature, relaxation and the company of friends are all part of MADSEA’s vision of experiencing and discovering the real Madeira. Not only is MADSEA's opening an important move in the expansion of the sport of bodyboarding, it will also help promote Madeira as a prime location for the sport and a must see destination on the international roadmap of the bodyboarding "tribe." MADSEA offers classes starting at 28 euros, including transportation, equipment rental and insurance, and MADSEA box-sets- vouchers for three or five classes that allow you to enjoy tours of "secret" beaches and destinations where the local surfers hangout and catch the crests of the best waves.
